After weeks of testing, firmware 3.0 arrives on the PS4 tomorrow. There's a whole host of enhancements and new features making in the 'Kenshin' update, including PNG screenshots, Communities, an Events app, video sharing to Twitter, YouTube streaming functionality, a dedicated space for PS+, and Stickers - which allow you to use pictures instead of words in messages. The PlayStation Blog goes into it more detail, but we've got a video showing off all of the changes for you to watch after the jump.Click here to read more...
Here's a great offer for those of you that want to finally jump into the current-gen with the release of FIFA 16. Along with a copy of this year's footballing effort, you can also get a free PlayStation TV, which allows you to stream your PS4 to a different screen as well as being able to play select Vita titles. The listing suggests that you can only have one or the other, but it's been confirmed that you can add both items, which makes this bundle a fine deal. One final note - the PS4 on offer here is the "B Chassis" and not one of the new builds that are quieter and slightly faster. Thanks to nunn @ HUKD!
If you do get this bundle, be sure to check out our PlayStation + and PSN Gift Cards cheap deals guide as well!
When we're discussing the pricing of a PlayStation 4 console, we generally want to be looking around the £250 mark for the solus, which is what currently makes this purchase a bargain. The supermarket's site is currently offering the PlayStation 4 plus two games from a great selection of either:

After a fairly shambolic initial beta test last month, Capcom are ready to bring back the Street Fighter V beta to the PlayStation 4. This region-specific test will launch later today from 4pm until midnight, with a second test scheduled for Friday at the same time.Click here to read more...

A post over on the PlayStation EU Blog is inviting users to sign up to test out the upcoming update. Only a small number will be chosen, but those that are will get the update on September 2nd.Click here to read more...
Regardless of our personal opinions regarding the high level of releases of remasters on the PlayStation 4 (and Xbox One) consoles, we can't help but be anything other than really happy here at Dealspwn for the upcoming October 7th release of the Uncharted Collection. You can now only begin to imagine our excitement to learn that it’s bringing with it a whole new set of trophies and game modes.
Sony have today announced some new details for the Uncharted Collection. The news of the addition of a whole new trophy set is sure to be a welcome announcement to trophy hunters, with photo mode also said to be making its way into all three of the remastered titles. However, the biggest news announced today is the new game modes, there are three in total…Click here to read more...
Consider Mortal Kombat X your first essential fighting game of the new generation of consoles. It's best enjoyed with local friends thanks to the easily memorised combos and buckets of gory X-Ray moves and finishers. The story and lengthy Tower options will pad out the single-player experience, but the online match ups are reserved for the more hardcore player.
Todays sees more games added to the ever growing list of titles available in this years Playstation Summer Sale.

Watch Dogs received somewhat of a mixed reception after its release back in November of last year, but for all our mixed feelings of Ubisoft's overly hyped release, it's increasingly hard to argue with a £1 purchase for PS4 or Xbox One versions. Especially if you're spending £10 on preowned titles from Game anyway.
Watch Dogs is a revolutionary sandbox that redefines player freedom and choice... that was subsequently eaten by a big bloated open-world game that takes less risks than it should. Watch Dogs 2 will need to focus and turn fat into muscle, but the fact remains that Ubisoft have delivered a huge versatile game that can be enjoyed on your terms. Combat, stealth and driving are all strong enough to impress, while hacking constantly provides new opportunities for violence, evasion, chaos, mischief or plain old voyeurism. You can still see the fiercely unique hacking game just behind the bloat, and better yet, play it. - Watch Dogs Review | Big Dog

Rocksteady and Batman is a combination we'll sorely miss. Their trilogy ends on a high though, with a refinement of their excellent Freeflow combat and Predator modes. The Batmobile is a somewhat mixed experience, but its heart is in the right place. Our much-awaited tour of the city of Gotham was a gorgeous sight to behold and an unforgettable goodbye. - Batman: Arkham Knight Review | A Knight to Remember
At £28.22 this is the lowest price we have seen for Batman: Arkham Knight, beating the now expired £29.86 from both Shopto and Amazon.
In the market for a new headset? Whether your an Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or an Xbox One gamer your going to find it hard to resist these little beauties! You are looking at well into the back end of the £100 mark for the next cheapest available on these Dual-Band Wi-Fi Wireless Turtle Beach XP 510 headsets.
As well as compatibility on both PC and Mac (see chart below) it seems the only hardware this headset isn't supported with is the Nintendo Wii U and Playstation 4. A review on Amazon states that a connection attempt to the Xbox One console has been successful.
Tamriel Unlimited is neither a great Elder Scrolls game nor an MMORPG for the ages, but it's something else entirely. An addictive if often awkward compromise with an astonishing amount of quality subscription-free content.
Though its singleplayer and massively multiplayer elements never quite gel, Tamriel Unlimited gradually starts to feel less like a compromise and more like a genre-bridging console revolution. So long as you can forgive a few flaws and a weak first impression. - The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Review | A Revolutionary Compromise
With only a 1000 available on each format and £4 above the lowest we have ever seen The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited it's a must have for both players new to the game and collectors alike.
It's always a good time to be an online gamer with an Xbox One, the cost of an Xbox Live Gold subscription seemingly drops every week with lowest pricing hitting the £18 mark for a years subscription. Not so much for PlayStation owners however, currently a years subscription for the ability to use Sony's online capabilities and Instant Game Collection will set you back £39.99 on the PlayStation Store with CDKeys periodically dropping to around the £33 mark.
Of course there is also the monthly (£5.49) and three monthly (£11.99) and options for those who prefer not to commit to the PlayStation + subscription model. Unfortunately that is all set to change as of 1st September 2015 as both the monthly and three monthly subscriptions are to be increased in price.Click here to read more...
If you're in the market for a PlayStation 4 without the 1TB bells and whistles then we really think you need to consider this option from Amazon.de from only £224.45.

For help with translation we suggest use of the Chrome browser with its inbuilt translator. All prices listed above are for payments made with a EURO conversion fee free card such as the Halifax Clarity with all other cards displayed in the brackets as GBP.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 will be releasing on Xbox One and Playstation 4 this coming October, and to be quite frank we were becoming increasingly worried regarding the graphical qualities of the game. Don't get us wrong, we appreciate that gameplay always resides above graphics, but it would be nice to play a Tony Hawk's Playstation 4 intended title with Playstation 4 quality visuals. Unfortunately it wasn't quite panning out that way with the visuals somewhat resembling Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 on the Playstation 2.Click here to read more...
It's nice to see Uncharted - The Nathan Drake Collection taking a price drop pre-release. We can question the pricing of remasters on the PlayStation 4 as much as we like but £34.85 for three of the best games the PlayStation 3 offered is somewhat of a no brainer.
The Nathan Drake Collection is also releasing with a Collectors Edition on its release in October that will come complete with a steel-book, a 48-page The Art of Uncharted Trilogy art book (which includes a hand-picked selection of concept art from Drake’s Fortune, Among Thieves and Drake’s Deception) and some rather cool looking stickers!
This is definitely the cheapest we have seen the PlayStation TV for yet. £34.86 will grab you this little device which allows you to stream your PlayStation 4 console to another room or play compatible PlayStation Vita titles.
You will be required to use code 5VGB at checkout to drop 5% off that listed price.
Currently putting this title above The Witcher 3, F1 2015 and Rocket League, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is definitely my go to game at the moment. I absolutely love it. As a vanilla player from World of Warcraft right back to 2004, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited gives me that fix (yes, fix) I need from the gap WoW left, and the great thing is, I can experience it on my sofa.

If there is one thing we like more that a cheap gaming deal here at Dealspwn, it's a freebie. Three titles are currently showing as free for gamers on the Playstation Network. FlOw, Flower and Woah Dave!
We see many claims of free titles on the Playstation Network over the course of the year but these current three titles are all verified on their respective listing pages 'to save 100%'. However...Click here to read more...
Need For Speed: Rivals is an exhilarating thrill ride that's very nearly brilliant. The foundations for fun are present and correct, but last-gen compromises transform AllDrive from a game changer into a nigh-on dealbreaker.
Then again, "nearly brilliant" is just another way of saying "very good indeed." There's no shame in that. - Need For Speed: Rivals Review | Nearly Next-Gen
I must point out that the item is shipped from an Australian retailer on eBay.co.uk and states that the game can take 8-15 days for arrival.
